The HERA-B experiment

The HERA-B experiment collected data during 1999-2003 from collisions of the proton beam on a stationary target of wires of different nuclei. A large-aperture, high-rate spectrometer detector was designed to measure the properties of the heavy quarks, bottom and charm. The Collaboration continued publishing results in this area until 2009.
